(July 20, 2009) Family leadership in education is a key goal of schools, but often the focus of parent involvement work is on fundraising and free labor. IDRA has led many to understand that family engagement should instead bring families into the conversation of creating student success. IDRA senior education associate, Dr. Rogelio López del Bosque, discusses how he created a family friendly school during his recent five-year term as a high school principal in order to bring families into the conversation of creating a school that achieved success for all students. Dr. López is interviewed by
Aurelio Montemayor , M.Ed., director of the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center. Send comments to
